MG: Similarities to Japanese, Euro designs ‘don’t matter’

Any design similarities between MG cars and those of European or Japanese manufacturers are irrelevant, according to the brand, given its near-100 year history and the general direction of the modern automotive design. Speaking with CarAdvice at the brand’s R&D centre in Shanghai today, MG chief designer, Shao Jinfeng, said the brand is more British than ever and criticism of its identity or similarity to other brands is not a concern.

Subaru Impreza, Liberty, Outback recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2004-2009 Impreza and 2008-2010 Liberty/Outback over concerns about the fuel pump wiring harness. According to the company, the wiring harness connector on affected vehicles can deteriorate over time. That could stop the fuel pump operating correctly, potentially extending the time taken to crank the engine on startup, causing the car not to start or stall. If the engine stalls and won't restart, this poses a hazard to the driver and other road users..
